  • No Perfect Mothers: A Novel
    There is much about her hometown that Carrie Buck loves: Venable Elementary where she first learned to read; Starr Hill because that's where Miss Mora lives; Chancellor's Drugstore where she sometimes gets a free cola; and Anderson's Bookstore where a girl can look through all the books she likes. While 1920s Charlottesville, Virginia, is a charming place to grow up, there's one thing Carrie doesn't like about her hometown--her home.
  • Reading Van Gogh: An Amateur’s Search for God
    By author: Elizabeth Barks Cox
    Elizabeth Cox writes about her own experiences, sometimes imprudent, sometimes profound: weeks spent living in a homeless shelter in New York City, a trip to the Mid-East where she visited Yasser Arafat in his compound, an unexpectedly impacting Alaskan adventure, working with abused/neglected children, and the explorations of the mind through reading. Each experience reflected and gave insight into what this author lacked, while deepening a sympathy learned from those around her, always trying to cross that bridge of understanding.
  • Elizabeth Oakes Smith: Selected Writings, Volume II: Feminist Journalism and Public Activism, 1850-1854
    Edited by: Timothy H. Scherman
    Volume II documents a nineteenth-century literary celebrity's decision to commit herself to the cause of woman's rights. The first volume of this series revealed a feminist sensibility in the subtexts of Elizabeth Oakes Smith's early poetry, fiction, and memoir. Volume II traces the sharp turn in her career at mid-century: a multidimensional effort involving newspaper editorial, a lecture career extending as far as Louisville and Chicago, and throughout these efforts, an attempt to garner the support to inaugurate the first journal owned and edited by women dedicated to the cause of woman's empowerment.
